Some Lynbrook residents have formed their own political party following a controversial proposal for an apartment complex near the railroad station.
The Preserve Lynbrook party officially launched on Wednesday by announcing candidates for village mayor and the Board of Trustees.
As News 12 previously reported, some residents were outraged over a proposal to build a six-story complex with 200 apartments. The village ultimately rejected the plan, but mayoral candidate Hilary Becker says there was a lack of transparency during the entire process.
The mayor of Lynbrook tells News 12 that he never withheld information about the project and all documents related to the proposal were posted online.
The village elections will take place in March.
